Drew Curtis, independent candidate for governor, says he's a pragmatist

"Drew Curtis has been using humor to address serious issues for years, but when things started falling in place for the 2015 Kentucky gubernatorial election, he decided it was time to get serious about making a change," Cheyene Miller writes for the Kentucky Kernel, the student newspaper at the University of Kentucky, in an article headlined "Drew Curtis: long shot, high hopes."

Miller continues, "Running on the Independent ticket, the owner and founder of, a community website where members can comment on news articles with satirical headlines, said he decided to run based on a general frustration with the quality of people that are running for office.

"Curtis has no political background and said that gives him a unique insight," Miller reports. "He doesn’t identify as liberal or conservative, but 'pragmatic,' in that he wants to make the state government work more efficiently." Miller notes that Curtis got 8 percent in the most recent Bluegrass Poll, which showed Democrat Jack Conway at 45 percent and Republican Matt Bevin at 42 percent.
